Fun and Folded The F4F-4 Wildcat 1/72 RFI

Recommended Posts

Good morning everyone.

The light in the cave was lovely this morning so I managed to get a few RFI shots of my last build of 2018.

She was a fun little build, something to bring me down after that Cra?Zy Lancaster.

She is pretty much OOB with some belts added to add a little detail. Paints used were Tamiya acrylic, And top coats. I used Tamiya weathering pigments and Flory washes.

The aerial line was made using Ezy line. Overall a fab little build that I could highly recommend.🙂 

I hope I have done it justice and I sincerely hope you had fun following along if you did. Here is the WIP thread.

Without further ado please let me bring you.

Very nice Wildcat, Johnny, and the weathering looks great!  I always like to see one built with the wings folded.





Thanks, glad you like her. She is my first with both wing folded.
